As we told you this morning, Elon Musk offered over $40 billion to buy 100% of Twitter and take the company private in what he claims is his “best and final offer” to the company’s board of directors:

Twitter’s board is reviewing the proposal now:

And right now, a number of liberal blue-checks are in complete meltdown mode over Musk’s offer:

Jeff Jarvis, for example, played the Nazi card and tweeted, “Today on “Today on Twitter feels like the last evening in a Berlin nightclub at the twilight of Weimar Germany”:

Twitchy regular Pam Keith says she’s leaving the platform, which, TBH, we wouldn’t miss at all. “Bye Felicia”:

But some blue-checks are already deleting their anti-Musk takes. Like Salon’s Matthew Rozsa (this is why Twitter needs Musk’s edit button):

And here’s Peter Hotez asking why Musk doesn’t use his billions to build a telescope or something instead of promoting free speech:

And let’s not leave out the many, many “f*ck @elonmusk” tweets that we’re starting to see:

As Karol Markowicz notes, “I am frightened by the impact on society and politics of people who are frightened by the idea of Elon Musk acquiring Twitter”:

What they’re really saying is, “In order for democracy to survive, we need to limit opinions”:

Well, we don’t take them seriously and neither should anyone else.
